The organization brings together a global community of innovators from diverse fields, including science, technology, design, corporate and civic leadership, public health and social and ecological innovation, to share insights and work collaboratively to create lasting change. It used this grant money to plan and host The City Resilient, a landmark forum held in Brooklyn, N.Y., in June 2013, which examined urban vulnerability to climate-change disruptions and strategies for improving communities’ resilience, as well as follow-on activities to the forum.
